October 4 Last Day to Register for November Election

The last day to register to vote in Pennsylvania's upcoming General Election is Oct. 4. Those wishing to register, change address or party affiliation may do so by mail or at the Voter Registration Office. Forms to register by mail may be obtained by contacting the office at 570-265-1717. Forms must be received at the office by 5 p.m. on Oct. 4.

The board also reports that some county polling places might be inaccessible to the elderly (65 and over) and the handicapped voters.

To implement the public law 98-435, which requires provision of voting aids for elderly and handicapped electors for the Nov. 2 General Election, the board is giving notice of the availability of aids and other information as required by law, and an alternative means of casting a ballot on election day for those assigned to an inaccessible polling place.

These electors should contact the Bradford County Board of Elections at the Courthouse, 301 Main St., Towanda, as to the procedures for voting an alternative ballot as soon as possible or prior to Oct. 25 or call 570-265-1717.

The Voter Registration Office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
